Because I think other files are not used in our engines at present.
If you need the files, you could file a bug.
However personally I may not think the request or fix is important since each distribution could copy or delete the necessary files in the the spec 
file during the build.

BTW, we try to upstream xkb engines into ibus 1.5, which set the xkb keymaps directly instead of the ibus keymaps.
